U.S. researchers have found that many kids don't use EpiPens as the solution to their severe allergic reactions. Although the EpiPen may be prescribed, investigators found that parents or caretakers of children do not use the small device when the child goes into anaphylactic shock, otherwise known as a fatal allergy reaction. Dr. Melissa Robinson, allergy and immunology fellow at National Jewish Health in Denver, said that in her study "only two-thirds of children with a prescribed epinephrine auto injector had it available at the time of the reaction."
